Hi All -

We are  two months out from the Summer ESIP
Meeting<http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Summer_2011_Meeting>and more
pieces fall into place almost daily (registration/hotel info at the
bottom of this email). This past month some ESIP sub-groups have started to
look at how at least one of their breakout sessions can focus on these two
1. What does your group need for data quality? (i.e. for different
applications) Is frequency of data more important that precision?
2. What are the data quality methodologies in your community?

For details on all breakout sessions and tech workshops see the wiki page
for session details<http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Summer_2011_Meeting_-_Session_Details>,
it is being continuously updated as more details become available.

*ESIP Student Fellows<http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/ESIP_Student_Fellows>
:* As many of you know, this spring we created the ESIP Student Fellowship.
We had a great response from students across the country and with a wide
variety of research interests. All applicants were extremely qualified, so
it is very exciting to continue to develop more ways that we can engage
students. Last week, with the help of the Partnership Committee, we picked
seven Student Fellows for 2011-2012. The table below shows the selected
students. These students will start participating in group telecons this
month and will be actively participating in the ESIP Summer meetings, so
please join me in welcoming them!
